Description

145-year-old beans from the Field's botanical collections are being used today to help restore a local native plant habitat. How does that work? We talked with Robb Telfer - a poet, and a passionate 'plant nerd' - about how he became involved in working to de-extinct rare species of endangered legumes and flowers!

Do you live in or around the Chicago or Calumet regions? You can get involved with Robb and the Field's habitat restoration programs! https://www.fieldmuseum.org/at-the-fi...
